Wojcicki has been working hard to grow the $9 billion ­online video site despite growing competition from Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Snapchat. She has added live streaming, new ad formats, and virtual-reality ­videos to the site, which counts over 1 billion users worldwide. She has also been boosting the amount of premium original content, ­recently acquiring the rights to the TV drama Step Up. Now the company hopes to bring in more dollars through ad-free subscription services that also provide streaming music.
